Right, tech was quite unreliable then and many of the toasters had crashed when MS tried to first the toasters as a Windows 3.11 screensaver.
Being a man, I feel that, actually, yes, women are better than men*. Men unconsciously feel that and oppress women not to let them use this actual superiority.

Oh I know these Schroedingbugs. You see your code and wonder how the hell it could ever have worked - it has, but with such a bug inside that seems absolutely impossible. That has happened to me a couple times. Scary.
"Monoculture is never a good thing." Sentences with "sth. is never/always X" are generally not trustworthy... Always doubt. Maybe monoculture sometimes IS a good thing, who knows?
That's right. For exactly this purpose the "ReheatCable"-encoding was invented at polar university in Hammerfest, Norway, where each 1 is transmitted als 101010101010 and each 0 as 010101010101.
Now 0 fahrenheit are 18 degrees celsius and that's quite cold. But it's not uncommon to get that cold in winter in the mountains. In the regions where the rich people have their winter houses it gets that cold often, and these are the common Tesla clients. I am sure that in St. Moritz there is more than one Tesla driving around.
Hey, I live in Switzerland, and 0 degrees is not uncommon in winter (you nonmetric folks call that "32 degrees fahrenheit"). No cable gets unusable at this temperature. It gets a bit more stiff, but that's all.
If I go outside in winter I get a bit more stiff too.

Goofy and intellectual in the same sentence? There's something wrong here.
